We hosted an American-themed showhome launch event at our new Mulberry Homes at Houlton development in Rugby, Warwickshire last weekend.
Situated on Houlton Way, Mulberry Homes at Houlton consists of 147 stunning two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, in a prime location with excellent transport links.
The event took place from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 1st July and allowed a number of property seekers to speak to the sales team and take a tour of the newly opened showhomes. A three-bedroom The Houlton style home, aptly named after the development of Houlton, and the four-bedroom The Blenheim style showhome, reflecting modern trends and accessorisation, were available to view.
Linked to the rich history of the area, the launch event was wartime American-themed. Houlton was the site of Rugby Radio Station in the 1920s, and was the site of the first ever transatlantic phone call. On Friday 7th January 1927, Sir Evelyn Murray, the Secretary of the General Post Office, spoke to Mr. Walter S Gifford, President of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company, across thousands of miles of ocean. The call was made to Houlton, Maine, USA, the namesake of the Urban&Civic consortium site that Mulberry Homes at Houlton is proudly a part of.
Attendees were able to enjoy wartime era swing singing courtesy of the upbeat trio The Lahdidah’s, along with a selection of delicious bespoke burgers from Bow & Bow.
Kerry Jones, Sales and Marketing Director at Mulberry Homes, said: “We’re overwhelmed by the reception and interest that people took in the opening of our new showhomes at Mulberry Homes at Houlton. We’d like to thank the individuals and families that showed up on the day to express an interest in one of our homes, and enjoy the singing and burgers available.
“Mulberry Homes at Houlton is an exclusive development full of stunning homes in the sought-after location of Rugby’s new neighbourhood, so we would highly encourage anyone who is looking for a home or thinking about moving to the area to come along and talk to our sales team about the development and how they can help.”
